We have a friend who REFUSES to provide her child with ANY vaccines, and they travel a lot doing ministry work. She exposes these children ON PURPOSE to some disease so they will get a "natural Immunity" to these diseases. This is one of the reasons we are starting to see an outbreak of disease that we had a huge handle on, and had beaten into the bushes. This woman takes her children to India where Polio is rampant. Scary! and then they come home and sit in their public school class where other NON vaccinated kids sit next to them. SCARY!
Im not sure which side of the fence to fall on. #1 my mom had polio as did my uncle. it was an awful disease, and now my mom has post polio syndrome and she is wreck! Had she had a vaccine as a child, she would have been spared this.
Do vaccines cause autism? I dunno, but there are a lot of studies that say no, even after the thymerisol was removed the studies are the same. is it our diets, and lifestyle and level of pollution and chemicals we feed ourselves that is making autism rise? dunno...something to think about.
Every time I get a vaccine I get sick. I get a flare. The last flu shot (yes, I know its a dead vaccine) sent me into such a flare I went blind with optic neuritis. Now im terrified to get a vaccine, yet im terrified to get next to those snotty kids in the grocery store. Darned if I do, and darned if I dont.
